Seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on opening night:

In case you haven't been following the latest Potter news, here's the story (from www.harrypottertheplay.com):
Based on an original new story by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre in the summer of 2016. 
Featuring a cast of over 30, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. 
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. 
I would so love to take the kids to see this! Daughter and son grew up reading Harry Potter, and we are veterans of midnight book release parties, movie openings, and at least one year of Halloween costumes.

Wingardium leviosa!

Unless I develop magical powers, however, it looks like we Muggles will just have to wait until the play comes to New York.
